Cambridge Cleantech Smart Cities project gets the go-ahead

Cambridge Cleantech will be managing £270,000 of the overall budget as the partner leading on open data innovation in the public sector. Use of public service information is currently estimated to have €300 billion of untapped value (EU, 2015). The Smart Cities Innovation Framework Implementation (SCIFI) project will establish collaborations between cities, citizens, public service providers, innovators and experts to unlock this huge potential, generating new Smart City products and services to solve urban challenges, while boosting regional economies.

The project, led by Mechelen in Belgium, brings together ten medium-sized cities from across the UK and Europe, and will run for four years. Stories of digital social innovation: Environment. 'Reality Labs': evolving the public sector innovation lab. How can labs have more real-world impact?

How To Build An Innovation Lab. History of Air Pollution Control. From Tunnels to Turbines: Old Ideas for Ridding Area of Smog, May 1997 Anecdotes Illustrate 50-Year History of War on Smog Southern California residents take it for granted that air pollution control is a highly sophisticated science backed up by a world-class air quality monitoring network. It wasn't always so. One of the first indications of the ill effects of smog was its damage to plants. Read about early research into plant damage at the University of California, Riverside. The first smog monitoring network wasn't established until the 1950s. One of the first stations still monitors pollutants in downtown Los Angeles. 1950s brochure advising growers on the use of smudge pots During the early 1950s, growers started using wind machines in place of smudge pots.
